In China, Meta also took action, deleting thousands of accounts there. This comprised 9,54 Pages, 15 Groups, 7,704 Facebook Accounts, and 15 Instagram Accounts. Meta’s investigations turned up connections between these accounts and people connected to Chinese law enforcement.

4. Russia:

Meta also addressed issues in Russia by removing some Facebook and Instagram profiles that were involved in inappropriate behaviour. These accounts were largely used to erode support for Ukraine. Meta’s decision to delete these accounts in Russia was motivated by a desire to limit operations aimed at undermining Ukraine’s international backing.
